Singapore Tales
When I was in Singapore, riding the bus to Orchard Rd, my sis and I almost got into a fight (inside the bus, while all those people were looking at us) all because we didn't understand how the bus fare system was. We paid the exact amount we needed to pay and my sister told me to grab a piece of paper from this electronic thing and when I did, nothing came out. And I started getting uptight about the whole thing and started talking in this somewhat loud voice and asking her about that. I was so scared since I didn't know what was going to happen.

But it wasn't anything. We made a big deal out of nothing. We got out of the bus, unharmed. That was nerve-wracking. Needless to say, we never rode on the bus again and instead stuck to the MRT.

The MRT. Hay naku, the MRT. We looked like misplaced tourists the first time we tried the MRT. We had no idea what to do and we were just standing there trying to figure it out. We stood there for what seemed like forever but was really only about 20 seconds before we figured out what we had to do. By the time we left for Manila, we had conquered Singapore MRT! Haha! Not bad for a bunch of clueless girls. We even rode the MRT on our way to Sentosa Island. One lesson learned from the MRT though: Never ride it during the after-lunch rush hour. The train is just packed! Packed with all those office workers hurrying to go back to work.

But one thing I really loved about Singapore: all the DVD/VCD shopping! I was in movie heaven. All those DVDs that I thought I'd only get from the US were all available there! Yes, I almost ran out of money. And if I didn't stop myself, I would have. Hay. I wish I could go back just so I can hang out at HMV (for the DVDs/VCDs) plus Kinokuniya (for all the books).
